Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is a relief, service and peace agency of the North American Mennonite and Brethren in Christ churches.

MCC held its first official meeting on September 27, 1920. MCC’s name is a reflection of this coming together of different church groups into one “central” committee. The MCC mission statement reflects the biblical call to care for the hungry and the thirsty, the stranger and the naked, the sick and those in prison. (Matthew 25:35-36). The goal of peacemaking is the well being of all people. For more information, see
